The (General) Photography Thread


Recommended Posts

On a couple of other forums I'm on, there are some threads set aside for general photography discussion - what gear you have/need/want, pictures you've taken (not necessarily of cars) etc etc. Over the past year and a bit I've taken a bit of a keen interest in amateur photography, so thought it would be a good idea to get something similar going here.

Feel free to post up any photos you want of any subject you wish, on the following provisos

1) It was taken by you (doesn't have to be with your equipment though)

2) The shots are work-safe

3) Please try and limit the size for bandwidth reasons (something in the 1024/1280 long side max) - no Captain Megapixel 5000x3000 shots that take half an hour to load

4) Upload your photos to a hosting site like Imageshack or Photobucket and then copy/paste the direct link into image tags like below, that way those who can't view attachments can still see them (and cuts down on the hosting load that this site has to bear)


5) No Nikon/Canon/Sigma/Leica etc bashing allowed (unless discussing the quality of a particular lens/body which is known to be crap/faulty eg) . We all use different cameras, just as we all drive different cars, and brand name has almost nothing to do with the end product.

If it's your first post in the thread, post up what gear you have/use too
